Books are the most portable past time you can go on an adventure, fall in love, and save the world. The best kind of story is those that linger in your head days after you've finished the book. And that's what reading is for me the search for the next book that lingers in my head.


Indelible - Dawn Metcalf Indelible is one of my most anticipated books to read this summer. After browsing the synopsis. I had to read it. At the heart of the book Indelible it’s a love story. Two individuals meet one human the other not. Understanding and a slow friendship is formed with lots of unintended attraction, quickly becomes mutual. Figuring out the balance between plausible without being ridiculous wasn’t easy writer Metcalf did a great job.The world she built was imaginative but simple. She made me care about these characters and what happened to them. Ink is unlike any character I’ve read in description that is, I’m shallow I usually go for the obviously pretty face, sigh. But the mystery behind those black eyes is what lured both Joy and myself in. Ink is cold but warm, curious, stubborn and its these facets of his character that mad me like him. Joy is a typical bruised person whose family has just imploded on them. She has mommy & abandonment issues and all the trauma that comes with being blindsided by the break up of a home. So she is a very relatable character any teenage girl can identify with some aspect of her life. Honorable mention goes to Monica I love the fact her character is sassy and African American. Who’s willing to do what’s in Joy’s best interest even if includes getting adults involved. And frank enough to say to Joy’s face when she’s being stupid. All the characters are nicely written with room for character development throughout the series.The danger in plot took a while to settle in, which was fine with me because the love story between Ink and Joy is so beautifully written and corny, sensual, I loved it and wanted more. The danger is real though she is tested by “the folk” and her resolved nearly breaks a few times. The baddies’s plan was ingenious and dishonorable. I hated her immediately (uh.. spoiler) did I ever tell you how much I hate “hollow villains” those that only have one theme on their playlist. So one track minded, fanatical that their personality is just that there are evil, no contrast equals boring. I prefer my villains with substances, that leaves you conflicted. My only major OMG I can’t believe that moment was durning Ink and the villain’s bargaining moment. The words “Nooooo you can’t trust her” were out my mouth.At the end I was so invested in the story. Joy surprised at how slowly capable she’s becoming. The ending was awesome. So much happening at once. Heart breaking, sweet and sad, though everything is not wrapped in a pretty bow at the end. There are some resolutions and surprises. I can’t wait to see what the next book brings. I would recommend Indelible if you are into paranormal romance, or a good story in general. The content is suitable for 14 +. aside from a little gore and few descriptive make-out sessions withstanding. I gave Indelible a four out five. 4/5
